Swiss online trading firm Swissquote has further expanded its cryptocurrency offering via the addition of Polkadot.

Polkadot is a next-generation blockchain protocol that enables different blockchains to connect and communicate with each other. The protocol was launched with the idea of creating a better internet, where control is returned to the individuals and not to large corporations. It was designed by Ethereum’s co-founder, Gavin Wood.

Polkadot is managed by Web3, a Swiss foundation that aims to create and nurture technologies and applications for decentralised web software protocols.

Clients of Swissquote can now trade a total of 23 cryptocurrencies.

Let’s recall that, in June, Swissquote added Dogecoin to its offering.

In April, cryptocurrencies Cardano (ADA), Filecoin (FIL), Maker (MKR), Uniswap (UNI) and yearn.finance (YFI) were made available for trading. Shortly after that, the cryptocurrency universe was further expanded with the addition of Aave (AAVE), Algorand (ALGO), Compound (COMP) and Cosmos (ATOM).
